Former tennis star Stefan Edberg shared his thoughts regarding Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic’s careers.Throughout Edberg’s accomplishments, he was able to reach the top of the tennis world during his prime in the late 80s and early 90s.

The multiple Grand Slam champion has acknowledged that the achievements of the big three have been incredibly immense.

“Lately three players and if you look at the last couple of years, they’ve won all the Grand Slams. They’ve been incredible for this sport,” Edberg said.

The appreciation Edberg has for the three remains true to this day but he also wishes that someone broke out to challenge the big three.

“It would have been nice to have a new young winner while Novak and Roger and Rafa are still around. It’s probably going to take some time for these young players because you need to win a Slam to start with and maybe need to win two, three, and then you’re sort of people start knowing about you,” Edberg continued.
